TEHRAN, Nov. 14 (MNA) – Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Unit (PMU), also known as Hashd al-Sha’abi, forces thwarted the attack of the remnants of ISIL terrorist elements on Mosul in Nineveh province.

Hashd al-Sha’abi forces in a surprise attack thwarted the ISIL Takfiri terrorists' attempt to infiltrate parts of Nineveh province, Al-Furat News reported.
